Square top Jibs & wide upper spreaders

I was looking at the PICs of the Australian 14s. They seem to have very wide spreaders compaired to the ones in the US. Also the uppers shrouds seem to attach to the mast on the lower end rather than going to the lower spreader tips. Why is this?

I noticed that several boats, AUS 647 being one, had jibs with square tops.

Wider spreaders might be a function of Archie M having full width spreaders on his boat and boats with the shrouds mounted on the racks.

Centre mount uppers are most often a function of having the uppers adjustable on the water to blade out the upper sail in v Light and heavy winds.
